We are looking for contributions to a volume of 'Endangered Metaphors', which will contain studies of idioms and conceptual (systematic) metaphors in endangered languages, representing different language families and different geographical regions. Metaphors have been a neglected area in documentation of endangered languages. We hope that this volume will help direct scholarly attention to the diversity of metaphor systems in the world’s languages and the need to incorporate metaphors in language documentation efforts. Scholars interested in contributing to the volume are invited to submit 500-word abstracts by 31 May, 2010, to Anna Idström, anna.e.idstromhelsinki.fi, and inform us about the topic by 28 February. Queries should be directed to the same address.
